When we spend time with couples during the meeting and engagement session, we get a little peek into their lives and their love for each other (which is what we are trying hard to capture). We hear stories of living together, having pets together, dealing with family, and here and there stories of hardship. So when I think of Aurea and Alexis, I think of hardships they had that makes their love forged in the fires of such. It’s nice seeing a couple where “for better or worse” is already tested and you know that they have so much better coming in their lives together.
We started the engagement session in downtown Laguna Beach, which has an iconic red phone booth that is always fun to photograph. After that we headed down to Laguna Beach (actually one of the more hidden beaches) to finish the session. With all the crazy waves and high tide, we got soaked but kept shooting, creating some amazing images.
